Match Report


That old Ibrox jinx struck yet again. Rangers with a fraction of the number of chances that United had, deserved their victory probably on that fact alone. Opportunities for Beedie (twice), Coyne and Dodds all went a begging before Cooper split the Tannadice defence allowing Ally McCoist to go clear and beat Hamish. A strong penalty claim when Durrant nudged Paul Hegarty off the ball was turned down and the first half closed with United with yet another missed chance.

The second half followed a similar pattern though only a goal-line clearance by Maurice Malpas from Bobby Russell's long range lob prevented Rangers going further ahead.
